He was gloating over the man's agony, and wanted to make his death as hard as possible, as he had more than one score to wipe out. Wills, of course, knew that he had no mercy to expect, and as he saw the intention of I-lowe he struggled to his feet, and, with the desperation of fear, dashed into the scrub and rushed down the hill. For a few moments Howe was too surprised to follow him, for he knew that Wills had received a fear ful wound, but when he disappeared he gave a cry of rage and dashed after him.

OUR MUSICAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 3 August 1894

OUR MUSICAL COLUMN. The following matter was omitted front last week's issue ewing to the stupid mistake of a temporary hand : Several of the English musical journals have been of late discussing what has got to be known as the " encore craze," and a few weeks back the sublject was broached in a Melbour/ne weekly. It is a big question, and opens up many lines of argument, hut it is certainly time it was fairly approached and squarely looked at. The average adietlice and the average unprofessional illger seem to take the whole thing as a Imatter of course. A performer pleases those who listen, they deImtnd a further instal menIt., and he or she is usnally only too glad to complly with the dlenmud. No doubt the desire for popular approbation is art incentive, and a strong one, to tiosit performers; still there lurks a secret danger in this very fact, for there arises too often aI tendency to produce, not truie artistic work, but often a meretricious conglomeration which repre sents, n...

THE GLORIlFIED PAU TAX. "That blessed pln-tax" is thIe phrase swhichl Cr 'iMCartel applies to the system which Tattin has adtiopted in removing its organic waste. There is some reason to believe the oholeric councillor did not really mean the tax was beatific and cauisedl residetnts to lilft their voices in gratefult thanksgiving when mentioneil. Let that pass. 'Motives shoulid not. he imputed. When George the Third placed a tax on teI, the people ofBlostoll nihldly protester by throwing the duti ahlo article into the sea.

THE EVENT OF THE YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 10 August 1894

THE EVENT OF THE YEAR. Once more the great Tatura Show, with its mammoth and many attractions is rapidly approaching. Every town of importance in the colony has its annual show, but nowhere does the gathering attain such importance as in the far famed Goulburn Valley and its centre, Tatura. Everyone works with a will to further ensure a success of the gathering and having done that much, atttention is turned to personal appearance. Every year this matter receives greater con sideration and the aim and object of patrons of the Show is to see and be seen to the greatest advantage. Not only with the gentler sex is this mattje dealt, but the sterner portion vie with one another to outshine their fellows. To do this the full strength of the various establishments are taxed to its fullest extent, and in no instance does it appear more prominently than in the famous tailoring business of Our Tailors. Last year the management exerted itself to the fullest, and the result was no dis appointm...

A SUNDAY SECULAR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 10 August 1894

A SUNDAY SECULAR CONCERT. Concerts of a secular character on Sunday evenilngs are established features of large towns, and last Sunday evcllening the members of Her Majesty's D)ramatic Company, who produced the "Shalugh raun" at the Mechanics' Hall on Satur day evening, gave, according to toheir custom, a concert in that hull. Th'lis was the first entertainmentu of its kind given in Tatura, and, although there was no bumper house, the attendance was large enough to evidence some interest in attempts to ameliorate the umonotony of the Sabbatlh, and the one lady in the audience umerits credit for having the courage to personally witness tihe value of such attempts. Mr Davis was in excellent voice, rendering ex deptionally well, " Remember me no more," andl "Ora Pro Nobis." The dialogue, " A Pair of Lunatics," found worthy exponents in Miss Stewart and -Mr Hazell, and the latter was much applauded for his recitation of "Jacob Keller," while " Only a Pin," by Mr Stoneham, seemed to tick...

THE AUSTRALIAN'S RECKLESSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 10 August 1894

THE AUSTRALIAN'S RECK LESSNESS. The Englisluman and the Scotchunan, and especially tlhe latter, have much to say in and out of season abont the reck lessness of the Australian, the ease with which he throws aside work for play, antd his general ilmprovidence. Especi ally against the bush Australian do they level the accusation that he is, with few exceptions, a periotlical dlrunkard ;l that he can never earn a cheque without itching to spend it; and that improvi dence begins and ends in him. To judge superficially as the old worlders have done, without any knowledge or appreciation of Australian conditions, all the foregoing charges are true. But treat the subject intelligently and you find the Australian is just the reverse. All that is wrong with him is despepsia at the beginniing, and later on aggra vated kidney diseases. The menu of the bush is unvarying, which is in itself a bad thing, and of poor quality, which is very much worse. Damnper to the writer, and such damper as hlie...

WHY IS THIS THUS? [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 10 August 1894

WHY IS THIS THUS? Mr. C. W. Wilson Tatura, is not a light-weight, and ie fell heavily on a gentleman named MBcLeodl at the lecture on fibre-culture last Saturday. Mr MeLeod, it is alleged, is an agent of the reapers' and bindcrs' association. and no doubt he attended for the purpose of throwing cold water on the flax-growing industry. He is a tall, solemn-looking individual, and from thie manner in which lie biegan to question Mr. Miller, with the aid of the copious notes lie hadl taken, lie has a very lhaiy idea of the shortness of life. 'lThe apparent object of his queries was to extract an admis sion from Mr. Miller, that l,inder twine could not be locally manuifactured to compete in price with thie imported article. Bearing in mind the present dispute on the subject, Mr. McLeod might have let the matter alone. When the chairman stopped the irrelevant questions, Mr. Wilson rose and thanked the sqlemn-looking stranger forthe un conscious homor he haid introduced. He then took the ...

THE KYA iIAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. ---- FRIDAY, AUGUST 10, 1894. Fon the past year the policitians of Victoria appear to have been in a state of mental and moral coma. Oblivious of the desperate state of the colony, they have remained in 'a fatal lethargy, whlilst the state Ihas been drifting on the lee shore of disaster. The Patterson Government has been preaching thle gos pel of cheerfulness to starving men and women, while they- toured the country, leaving a well. mlarked track of " dead marines" in tile shape of emnpty cham pagne bottles. Heu roosts anld turkcey coops have been devastated by the march of Patterson and gargantuanl followers. Elusive promises kept pace withll tlhe victiuals devoured, and with full stonlmachs thelmselves they were not likely to sym pathise with tile wretchlled homeless and foodless ones.
